The statement indicated the fund's intention to invest in companies working on developing new technologies, or improving current technologies in important sectors, such as energy, health facilities, life sciences, food and agriculture, transportation, logistics, financial services, and education.
According to the statement, the managing director and CEO of ADQ, Mohamed Hassan Al-Suwaidi, said that the launch of the fund comes within the framework of promoting bilateral trade and joint investments since late 2021.
"The launch of the fund underscores our commitment to investing in Turkey's future growth," Al-Suwaidi added.

For his part, CEO and board member of the Turkish sovereign wealth fund "Arda Ermut", said in the statement, "The technology sector has achieved significant growth in Turkey during the past few years."
"We believe that the Turkey Technology Fund will provide more investment opportunities in new generation technologies," Ermut added.
He explained that the new fund is "the first step taken by the Turkish Sovereign Wealth Fund, on the path to achieving its vision of building a broader technology platform worth $1 billion."
He added that the new fund will accelerate the growth of the technology sector and lead progress in strategic technology sectors important to Turkey's development.
